Nasrallah: 'Trump fired the last bullet on the peace process'

Hassan Nasrallah, the secretary-general of Hezbollah, said in a televised speech on Thursday that "Islamic and Christian holy sites in Jerusalem are under threat" after Trump's decision to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv.

"One day we might wake up and find Al-Aqsa mosque being demolished because of the ongoing Israeli diggings underneath it."

He said that the US administration did not respect its Arab allies when it took this decision, and it did not abide by the international community consensus and UN resolutions regarding Jerusalem.

"Trump fired the last bullet on the peace process and he dared to announce its death," he said.
